On Friday, a chief official of Thai AirAsia (TAA) said that the company would resume its operations to all of the 23 domestic destinations throughout Thailand next month.
Santisuk Klongchaiya, the chief executive of Thai AirAsia, said that they would also increase flight frequency across the domestic operation.
TAA will also provide connection flights to 25 other regions, including the Chiang Mai-Hat Yai and Chiang Mai-Pattaya routes.
The flights mentioned above to other regions are in addition to their usual 23 domestic destinations.
The TAA executive also said that they would seek to stimulate air travel by offering 68 daily return flights. Mr. Klongchaiya noted:
“We increased the frequency of popular routes such as the nine daily flights for Chiang Mai, seven daily flights for Khon Kaen, five for Phuket, in accordance with travel demands.”
He continued by stressing the airlines support for the Thai government’s plans to encourage domestic tourism:
“We are ready to support domestic tourism to best stimulate spending in various parts and provinces of the country.”
While Thai AirAsia will return to operations soon, some airline companies will no longer see flights.
NokScoot, a small-scale regional airline, just recently announced its liquidation.
The decision came as the budget airline company can no longer manage the losses incurred from the coronavirus pandemic.
Thai Airways, the flag carrier of Thailand, was at the brink of closure due to the suspension of flights from covid-19. They have filed for bankruptcy reconstruction.
Overall, the pandemic dealt heavy losses to the air transport sector.
